This bulletin provides a comprehensive overview of many different aspects of sedative or tranquilliser, and antidepressant use in Ireland and Northern Ireland. It presents data gathered in the All Ireland Drug Prevalence Survey 2006/2007 relating to sedatives or tranquillisers, and anti-depressants on a lifetime (ever used), last year (recent use) and last month (current use) basis. The bulletin also examines, age of first use, frequency of use, method of taking them, how they were obtained and the profile of typical sedative or tranquilliser, and anti-depressant users.

The survey was carried out by Ipsos MORI in Ireland and by the Central Survey Unit of the Northern Ireland Statistics and Research Agency in Northern Ireland according to standards set by the European Monitoring Centre for Drugs and Drug Addiction (EMCDDA).
